Budget 2014 – views sought
Last month, the Chancellor announced that the 2014 Budget will be held on Wednesday, 19 March 2014. The Budget will be George Osborne’s fifth.
An interesting press release was recently published by HM Treasury seeking views from business, charities and members of the public as to what they would like to see in Budget 2014. To quote the article‘In the interest of open and transparent policy-making, the government welcomes original and innovative ideas, which will be considered by HM Treasury.’
The closing date for making a submission is 14 February 2014. Additional guidance on making a submission has also been published.
Details of all the Budget announcements will be made on a special Budget 2014 section of the HMRC website which will be updated following completion of the Chancellor’s speech.
